Spam accounts registering

Recommended Posts

S!

Saw notifications of a couple new folks signing up for our site. On checking, I found they used IP addresses from different corners of Russia, but used the exact same text for different tw-factor questions: "Zepto Znote" and "ShuttleX"  ... Neither of which look like a street or movie title. Both accounts have been flagged as Spammers (info goes back to IPS for addition to the spammer database) and banned from this site.

Was wondering how long before bot registrations would start happening, looks to me like it has.

I used to get those all the time on the OF forum. Deleting each one as they joined eventually got them to stop.

Getting some occasional crap now to the site contact email address.

List of unknown visitors far exceeds those of registered members and registered guests.
